Tattooing is the main way of expressing belief and status. All tattoos are done in what they called Sacred Grey. The grey of the winter sky. T Their tattoos tell their story both of the tribes and of themselves.
Festive of the Feather: Held at the first sighting of the winter lights. The Blue Foxes travel to the site and are met by the cousins the Black Seals, White Hares, and Grey Eagles. At the festive, there are no feuds, grudges, or rivals. Stories are told of the events that passed from the last festive, materials traded, and mates taken in a grand ceremony under the shimmering lights. Festive can last for weeks as the lights dance overhead.
From the moment of their gathering and becoming known as the Blue Foxes; which are guided by the Great Fox. Things were always about survival for them. Then came what they refer to as the 'Decade of Warmth' where the winters were all fall and spring; the snow didn't pack heavy upon the ground and the streams and lakes didn't freeze. In this time, the tribe grew larger as the land provided for more people. This did not last as they hope and winter returned with its bitter harshness. Barely surviving the first return of winter and making it through to spring. The leaders gather and the ways of the fox were explained and choices were made. Some families went north and became the Black Seals. Others went west and become the White Hares. To the east are the Grey Eagles. With the Blue Foxes remaining in the south of their lands. The four tribes are friendly to each other and will support the other if called upon.
